Demon

An intriguing premise that never builds much of a sense of dread, this Polish/Israeli horror/comedy is a better idea than movie.
storks-featured

Storks

Middle-of-the-road animation for kiddies with some humor thrown in for adults that doesn’t really click.

the-hollars-featured

The Hollars

A great big warm, wet hug of a movie, this dramedy about a wayward kid going home is weighted with cliches but rings true and avoids tripping over pretensions.
blair-witch-featured

Blair Witch

You can't recapture lightning in a bottle, but "Blair Witch" is thematically and aesthetically a true inheritor to the original game-changing film.

complete-unknown-featured

Complete Unknown

Splendidly acted by Rachel Weisz and Michael Shannon, "Complete Unknown" questions one woman’s false personas and the very concept of identity as a fixed point.
sully-fetaured

Sully

Though it chooses to cut its story thread in strange places, "Sully" is still an engrossing tale of an unremarkable man who did an extraordinary thing.

Michael Fassbender stars as Tom Sherbourne and Alicia Vikander as his wife Isabel in DreamWorks Pictures poignant drama THE LIGHT BETWEEN OCEANS, written and directed by Derek Cianfrance based on the acclaimed novel by M.L. Stedman.

The Light Between Oceans

A beautiful and tender story of romance and tragedy that takes its time to build the emotional world of its characters.
Equity - featured

Equity

The Wall Street corruption story gets a twist with this female-centric story, starring Anna Gunn as a conflicted financial whiz.

Hands of Stone - featured

Hands of Stone

Strong performances, including Usher Raymond & Robert De Niro, buoy this Roberto Duran biopic, but it dances around the ring of the fighter’s life too much.
Our Little Sister - featued

Our Little Sister

This beautiful Japanese movie tells the tale of three adult siblings who welcome their teen half-sister into their lives, leading to transformation.

Hell or High Water - featured

Hell or High Water

A moody, evocative potboiler that steadily builds a head of steam, “Hell or High Water” is sharp as a leather strap cracked against bare skin in the Texas sun.
Kubo and the Two Strings - featured

Kubo and the Two Strings

A mesmerizing blend of fantasy, action and music, "Kubo and the Two Strings" is another stop-motion animation gem from Laika.

Anthropoid

ReelBob: Anthropoid

"Anthropoid” is not a great movie, but it covers a brutal historical landmark event with sincerity and just a bit of Hollywood invention.
Indignation

ReelBob: Indignation

You come away with an appreciation for the dialogue sorely missing from the majority of today’s movies that emphasize flash over substance.
